Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
This moderate roller coaster boasts an innovative ride vehicle that pendulum-swings from side to side as you ride the banked curves of the Seven Dwarfs’ fabled mine. It’s something of a cross between Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain. The journey begins like any tubular-track coaster, up and into the mine. Inside, the track levels out and you pass Audio-Animatronics depicting scenes from Snow White. Then, emerge from the mine to finish up with short drops and fast turns. 38” (97 cm.) height restriction. If you do not have a FastPass+ reservation, make a beeline for this first thing in the morning. Alex’s KidTip: “I think it’s too scary and fast for kids who don’t like coasters.”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.
Ages: Ages 4 & up
Thrill Factor: Fast turns, modest drops
Coaster Duration: 3 min.

We finally got to ride this recently and we loved it! The ride is so smooth and it's fun both day and night. Although the lines are long it is worth not Fastpassing it once to play in the queue. I especially love the scenes with the Dwarfs.

A perfect family Roller Coaster with some extra magic thrown in!

This ride is so much fun. I love how the cars swing independently. The animatronics on this ride is unbelievable. The imagineers really out did themselves. It is really cool to have the photopass and it shows you while your on parts of the ride. It makes for a fun souvenier. The only problem is this ride is really short.

The ride itself is very good, it is also very short.

My husband's rating because I don't like coasters (fear of drops): The line is too long and the ride is too short, but it's fun. Very smooth. Very good theming.

one of our fav rides!

This is an entry level coaster with some cute dark ride elements. The neat thing about this if you have the photo pass is that you'll get a video of yourself riding this attraction! But...lines are long...so go early or use a fastness!

SHORT ride... LOVE IT! A very smooth roller coaster for all ages. We FP this for each day in MK.

Great theming and a great addition to Fantasyland. While I don't have problems riding even the largest coasters the swinging cars made me motion sick, making this a once a trip ride.

New Favourite. First ride ever was at night and laughed throughout the whole ride. I would normally score this a 10 but the queue before you enter the Mine is long and it can get hot. Then Fan do help but they could use more.

I can take it or leave it. While the scenery is cute, I did get off feeling very underwhelmed as I was expecting it to be a roller coaster comparable to big thunder and it IS NOT (it moves very slow for a coaster)

A bit too short but I loved it. I especially love the rocking type motion of the cars versus the traditional roller coasters.

I will probably get boo-ed for not giving this one a 10, but the ride is so short! I found that if you sit in the very back rows you have more time to look at things.

Not a bad ride. Not super thrilling and not super scary. I sort of wish they had either gone more thrilling or more childish for it. I don't find it worth the crazy waits it has.

PLEASE ONLY RIDE THIS WITH A FASTPASS. It is tooooooo short to wait in line for. If you cant get a Fastpass go to Runaway Train, it is longer and very similar (minus the theme)

Too short of a ride to justify the stand-by line, but themed so very well.

amouse9 gave this a rating of 10 on 06/03/2016 at 2:03:00 am EDT
Rode this for the fist time in April and I was hoping it would earn a 10 rating. While the animatronics were really impressive & ride was exceptionally smooth my fam felt the ride was over too soon. We were lucky to snag a FP but all agreed we might feel disappointed if we'd had to wait in 2hr+ line to ride.

Surprisingly does not live up to its hype. It is okay - and far too short given the length of time you spend trying to get on. Like other raters, I think that it may round-up to 3 minutes, vice being a full 3 minutes!
